Chrissy Teigen and John Legend's littlest love, daughter Esti, is one lucky little sister.

In an exclusive pre-Mother's Day 2023 interview with E! News, the Cravings author gushed over the bond the couple's eldest children, Luna, 7, and Miles, 4, have formed with their now-4-month-old sibling.

"Oh, gosh, it's just so cool to see Luna and Miles like, thriving," Chrissy said. "Everyone asked, 'Oh, are you worried they're gonna be so jealous?' I'm like, 'They're jealous of who gets to hold her first!' They love her so much."

Speaking at the May 12 launch of her Cravings bakery and pop-up at the Row in downtown Los Angeles, in partnership with Shopify, the Chrissy's Court star continued, "Luna is so comfortable with the baby. Luna walks around with Esti, like, one handed."

Meanwhile, Chrissy and John's son cannot help but dote upon his baby sister. "It's amazing to see Miles is the king of kisses," his mom continued. "They're so comfortable with her. In the first week we brought her home, John was crying just over their reaction to her. It was so amazing."

Chrissy Teigen & John Legend's 2023 European Vacation With 3 Kids

May 14 marks Chrissy's first Mother's Day with Esti. She told E! News about what she wants for the holiday, and her answer may surprise many.


"Nothing!" she said. "Like literally nothing. That is the dream, because John's dream Father's Day is going on a date or something. For me, it's nothing. I would just love to stay at home. I think he might make mac and cheese."

John actually has a Mother's Day tradition for his wife. "Every single year, John makes us a yearbook of everything we did that year. Photos that he compiles himself. He picks every single photo all the layouts and we get a book about like three inches thick of the entire year. So we have had that since the year Luna was born," Chrissy told E! News. "That is my Mother's Day gift every single year and I never want anything else."

On Mother's Day, Chrissy paid tribute on Instagram to her mom, Vilailuck "Pepper" Teigen, and also shared new family pics, writing, "Grateful for all the people who make it possible for me to be the best mother I can possibly be. I am endlessly thankful for your presence in this home and all our lives. we love you."

A day before the holiday, John shared on his Instagram Stories a photo from the family's recent trip to Europe, their first overseas vacation with Esti, and a link to a Mother's Day playlist on Spotify.
